Calvin Lai received his PhD in Social Psychology from the University of Virginia in 2015. His research concerns unconscious thoughts which contribute to discrepancies between what people value (e.g., racial equality) and what people end up doing (e.g., racial discrimination). His work employs large-scale comparative methods to find the most effective interventions for combating unconscious biases and their impacts on discrimination. Lai's work has been published in leading journals such as the Science, Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, and Perspectives on Psychological Science.
